Once again the Gods smiled upon us and we had some fantastic weather, albeit a little chilly for the ex-Majorca contingent, for the event this morning.
It was good to receive very positive feedback on the general organisation (thanks Jim and helpers) and also on the excellent marshalling. No incidents = happy faces at the committee meetings! Well done to all competitors, marshalls, cake-bakers, beverage re-fillers and organising committee:-)
Great to see new PB's from some AFG members (all that winter training has been paying off) and also a few newbie 25 Mile TT participants too. Rumour has it that a new award is in the pipeline for a rider exposing the most skin in temperatures below 8 degrees Celsius and there was at least one potential candidate for that this morning. It has also been confirmed this afternoon that shares at Riley's have taken a slight dip in the last few weeks due to a major drop in orders for the Althlete's breakfasts due to the recent good weather. Perhaps after all, that additional protein has helped with building some extra power...who knows!
Finally, a big congratulations to the major prize winners and well done to all competitors for supporting the event this morning and providing an excellent example of safe riding. Hope you all continue to enjoy your riding and fingers crossed for a continuation of the favourable weather for future events.
